The Mountain Gateway Museum & Heritage Center will host a spring wreath-making workshop at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 13, on the museum’s grounds at 24 Water Street, Old Fort.

On this Mother’s Day weekend, bring your mother, grandmother, best friend or neighbor to this pre-lunch event and design a wreath for the spring or summer season or even the 4th of July. The museum will provide wreath forms, ribbons, floral wire, hot glue, and decorations to help you customize your wreath. Local wreath designer Toni Jo McCoart will be the workshop instructor.

Cost is $15 per wreath. Advance registration and pre-payment are required and must be made by 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 10. To register, please contact the museum. Payment may be made via phone or in person by credit card, check or cash. Space is limited to the first 12 people to register and pay. Each participate may reserve space for two people maximum.

Workstations will be set up outdoors, on the museum’s front porch and nearby gazebo, so participants should dress according to the weather. Face masks are optional.
